 Avante Cox, Southern Illinois, Player News


  It didn't take long for the SIU football team to develop injury concerns about a star player for the Sept. 3 season opener at Incarnate Word. Coach Nick Hill said that sixth-year senior wide receiver Avante Cox is down with a hand injury suffered in practice and that it's not certain that he'll be able to suit up when the Salukis travel to San Antonio. "Avante's not out for the season," Hill said, "but it just depends on is it a four-week injury and can we get him back for the game? Or is it a six-week injury? We'll get him back at some point, but he's definitely hurt." Cox battled a shoulder injury over the second part of 2021, missing three games, including a second round FCS playoff defeat at North Dakota State. He still finished with 43 catches for 739 yards and five touchdowns. - TheSouthern.com

  Avante Cox had a career-high 10 receptions for 148 yards and a touchdown, Romeir Elliott scored on a 5-yard run midway through the fourth quarter and Southern Illinois beat South Dakota 22-10 on Saturday night in the first round of the FCS playoffs. Southern Illinois improved to 4-3 all-time against the Coyotes. Despite both teams being in the Missouri Valley Football Conference, the programs hadn't faced off since the Salukis won 48-28 at South Dakota in 2019. The Salukis (8-4), ranked No. 23 in the FCS coaches poll, plays at third-ranked and No. 2 seed North Dakota State — another MVC member — next Saturday. Southern Illinois won its last meeting with the Bison 38-14 on Feb. 27, ending NDSU's 39-game win streak. Southern Illinois scored on drives of 14, 15 and 16 plays in the first half to take a 13-0 lead into the break.

Nico Gualdoni made a 50-yard field goal to cap a 30-yard drive and open the scoring midway through the first quarter, an 85-yard drive culminated when Cox caught a wide-open 4-yard TD pass with 8:04 left in the second quarter and the Salukis marched 83 yards before Gualdoni kicked a 26-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. SIU's Qua Brown, a sixth-year senior who went into the game with two career interceptions, picked off two passes in Salukis territory. On the opening possession, Carson Camp sailed a pass over the middle intended for Caleb Vander Esch that Brown intercepted at the 26 and Brown undercut a back-shoulder pass at the 1 to preserve a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter. Camp, who went into the game having thrown just four interceptions this season, was picked off a third time when Clayton Bush intercepted a pass on third-and-17 with 5:29 to play. - Southern Illinois/AP College Football
